The current A1037, a short road in east London, was built in the late 1980s.
The road starts at a mini-roundabout on the A112 to the west of Chingford town centre. It then heads southwestwards along Waltham Way. The road's young age is emphasised by the fact it is not residential; there are houses visible to the left but they are not accessible from here. It doesn't stop us having a 30 limit, however, as the northern end of the road has a junction with a residential street and some sporting premises.
Presently the road widens to become a dual-carriageway and ironically becomes of lower status. We're now lined with houses and the left of the road is filled with parked cars despite the fact that most of these houses do have driveways. Junctions with side roads are also far more frequent; they tend not to be served by gaps in the central reservation although other gaps to allow U-turns turn up quite often. Presently the road reaches a roundabout on the A1009 Hall Lane, where it ends.
